Some of my Jeep Tools

Most of these tools are representaive of the tools issued with World War II jeeps. More info on this can be found in other places on the web, but here are the tools that I use with my jeep. I either carry them in/on the jeep. Some are vintage, all are real. I will list the new tools and supplies last.
